The Pennsylvania System of School Assessment, also known as PSSA, measures how well students have achieved in reading and mathematics according to Pennsylvania’s world-class academic standards. By using these standards, educators, parents and administrators can evaluate their students’ strengths and weaknesses to increase students’ achievement scores. According to the federal No Child Left Behind Act, students must be 100 % proficient in reading and math by 2014.
